If a short, easy hike to some great views of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon appeals to you, this is your hike.
This is an easy hike through the lovely north rim pine forest to one of the best lookout points on the North Rim. From the parking area, walk along the easy to follow trail through the ponderosa pine and aspen forest. After 2.2 miles of walking you'll reach the viewpoint.
The point extends out into the canyon, so the views here are particularly impressive. You'll be able to see Furnace flats, the Tanner trail, the Little Colorado river gorge, Vishnu Temple, and Chuar Butte from this wide open viewpoint. There is a campsite here, but you need a backcountry permit to camp. After enjoying the views, return the way you came.
